Overview

An Invitation to Reasoned, Passionate Faith

Mind on Fire is an easy-to-read translation of the classic Pensées by Blaise Pascal. Here the remarkable seventeenth-century mathematician, physicist, and religious thinker presents his uncompromising defense of the Christian faith—a rigorous refutation of the myth that to become a Christian is to commit intellectual suicide.

Dr. James Houston has arranged Pascal's seemingly random meditations into a logical progression of thought—the first time ever that an editor has carried out Pascal's original intention for his Pensées. Also included are selections from pascal's Letters to a Provincial, Pascal's own description of his conversion.

Dr. James Houston, editor of the CLASSICS OF FAITH AND DEVOTION, is a highly acclaimed scholar and pioneer in the field of evangelical spirituality. He came to North America from England in 1968 to lead Regent College in Vancouver, Canada, a worldwide center of spiritual formation.
